We all know the SEIU (Service Employees International Union) is an ardent supporter of Barack Obama. Interesting to note that New York SEIU 1199 organized a candelight procession on Friday night as “A Celebration and Procession For Our Comrade Hugo Chavez”.

SEIU Organizes Hugo Chavez ‘Celebration And Procession’ To Honor ‘Our Comrade’

Wibailoutpeople.org was one of the few website which still posted the SEIU announcement detailing the “celebration and procession” for the deceased Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez.

A memorial vigil was held Wednesday at the Venezuelan consulate in Manhattan, but the union march is raising eyebrows.

    well, at least Venezula has been liberated…from Hugo. That’s worth a celebration.

    Let’s see if the SEIU loses any members because of this farce. Are people paying attention to this? Is this what they pay money to support? Can you ever really just leave the SEIU? Kinda like the mafia, you don’t just walk away.

    Shameful that O’Bummer is sending a delegation to Venezuela for the “comrade”, but not one flag at half-mast, or even a mention of our fallen “patriot” Navy Seal, Chris Kyle. It’s disgusting.

    Comrade is okay, but better not be any Big Gulps or smokes or salt or trans fat or styrofoam at the celebration or Mayor Bloomers may get his in a bind.

    Workers of the world unite, it’s not just a slogan anymore said by Obamas right hand man Andy Stearn. Viva Chavez!

Usually related to living conditions. 2. Any genitalia that is poorly maintained or foul in scent.)

    Chavez was a Communist Dictator. Any group or person who admired or
    supported him(then and now) are Communist Sympathizers.

    WaPo blogger, Jennifer Rubin, takes Obama’s comments on Chavez’s death to task in her post.

    “…The president, in his embarrassing and mealy-mouthed statement, offered no such condemnation of Chavez’s past behavior. Obama thereby displayed a number of his greatest failings… At his excuse-ridden news conference last Friday, the president declared, “I’m not a dictator.” Unfortunately, he seems unwilling to admit that Chavez was one. And in failing to do so, he highlights the moral vacuum he created where the world’s only superpower used to exert moral (as well as economic, diplomatic and military) leadership.”

    And in other union news, police had to file subpoenas & court orders against a Maryland teachers union to get their forms relative to an embezzlement case.

    “…a story in the Salisbury (Maryland) Daily Times, the Maryland State Education Association conspired to hide the embezzlement of nearly a half-million dollars from its members because “because of (the) potential impact on membership and loss of members” according to a insurance document the union filed… Authorities have said the lack of cooperation from MSEA made it very difficult….Eventually, through subpoenas and court orders, police were able to locate the WCTA’s insurance company,…”
